1) Monsanto Company is occupied in agriculture, and cares about the welfare and life quality of the farmers worldwide. DEKALB Seed brand guarantees stable yield and quality for more than 100 years already.
2) Due to the constantly growing global need in the high-quality food, farmers are expected to find new effective farming technologies. Monsanto Company understands these needs and helps farmers to manage their businesses ecologically and rationally: to produce more, reduce the use of water resources, land and energy, protecting the environment.
Improve farmers’ lives. From 1991 Monsanto Company goes hand in hand with the Ukrainian farmers, providing them with top quality seeds and crop protection.
Each batch of seeds, produced by Monsanto Company has very high criteria and standards of quality, whether it is produced in Ukraine or abroad.
Responsible attitude to seeds production of seeds and keeping all highest quality requirements enable Ukrainian farmers to plant best quality seeds.
Corn seeds’ production. Preplanting.
Choosing the right field is the first stage of achieving high quality seeds. Monsanto experts examine all possible fields beforehand, and choose the most suitable one, according to location, type of soil and its preparation. Right before planting Monsanto professionals are making sure that soil has already been warmed up to 10 0C.
In compliance with Monsanto Company standards, the speed of planter should not exceed the limit of 6-7 km per hour; otherwise it may lead, independently from the type of machinery, to an unequal distribution of seeds in a row, which may result in an unequal growth of plants, uneven tassels, influencing the genetic purity of seeds. The scheme of plants’ arrangement and width of the inter-row spacing may vary depending on the hybrid. Female line seeds are to be planted first. The first row of male line seeds is sown when the first sprout of female plants appear on the soil surface. When the first leave is fully unfolded, the second row of male plants should be sown. A gradual flowering of several rows of male plants promotes full pollination of female plants and formation of quality seeds. The result is monitored immediately after sowing. To perform this monitoring, the experts of Seeds Company open the row and count the number of seeds in sections of 3, 7 and 30 m.
The next factor, influencing greatly the quality of seeds, is roguing.
Detasseling is eliminated on the fertile female plants by pulling out with hands or cutting it with the help of specialized equipment.
Both manual and automated method of elimination is efficient in its own way. During manual elimination the plants suffer less damage and 3-6 persons is enough to cover an area of 1 ha. Automated elimination, however, is more efficient. For example, the equipment, which detassels simultaneously in 8 rows, is capable to cover an acreage of 50 ha within one day.
The male plants are destroyed after the pollination of the female plants and total drying of all silk on ears. It is made to facilitate the aeration of the rows of female plants, which decreases the possibility of the development of stem and cob diseases. Moreover it makes impossible for the male seeds to mix with the female ones.
This year Monsanto Company has installed the frontal irrigation system to protect the crops from drought and to increase the amount of seeds’ production. The water pump is located near the pond. Before the irrigation, water is prefiltered from organic parts, plant residues and mud. The field is irrigated in the most critical phases of corn vegetation – starting from seven leaves and after flowering and seeds’ formation. This period lasts from June to August. Monsanto Company expects to increase the volume of seeds by 20% due to irrigation systems
